Manual import of List & Label project files into the Report Server
To manually import List & Label print templates for the Report Server, you must log on to the Report Server first. Then you create a new report template, which is (ideally) named like the List & Label project file. After naming the report template, the data source is selected, which must be identical to the data source used for the List & Label project file.  After selecting the data source, it is possible to select the access rights for the usability of the report template. Then select "More Options > Open in Designer". After opening the Designer, it is possible to import existing List & Label project files under "File > Import...". After the successful import of the List & Label project file, it should be checked again for correctness. If necessary, sorting and/or the design scheme must still be adapted. It is also recommended to print the preview to check whether the result meets your expectations. The report template can then be saved in the Designer and in the Report Server.

Import of List & Label project files via Report Server Client API
As an alternative to manual import, you can also choose to use the Report Server Client API. To use this method, however, you must first create an ApiUser as a user in the Report Server.  

The steps for creating the report template remain the same as for manual import. Then open the provided programming example "C# Client Api Sample" (to be found under the following path: "...\combit\LL24\Samples\Microsoft .NET\Report Server\C# ClientApi Sample") and log on to the Report Server. The created ApiUser is used for logon. After successful login, select the button "List & Label Integration: Import Project with Dependencies". The List & Label project file to be imported and the report template created are selected. The dialog is then confirmed with "OK". If no error message appears, the List & Label project file was imported successfully. After importing the List & Label project file, you should also check it again for correctness. If necessary, sorting and/or the design scheme must still be adapted. It is also recommended to print the preview to check whether the result meets your expectations. The report template can then be saved in the Designer and in the Report Server.
